It is all about heirloom today

If you are a regular reader here at CDL then you know that I love traditional Indian items specially metal ones...brass, copper, pittal and if you are new here at CDL then you now know something about me :)

Today's vignette has all of them but more importantly with the addition of heirloom so beware its a picture heavy post :) 

I love these items but I love it, heart it to the core if they are heirloom, feels proud in possession that sometime belonged to mom-in law or great great grandma and there is always a memories with them. If you have treasures like this in your family hold on to them ....generations will cherish it :)


Beautiful Dianthus flowers are from our small patch of green in the backyard.

Vase that gracing beautiful pink Dianthus is a pittal glass that my mother-in law got in her wedding from here maternal side and same is for the tray in which I have created the vignette.

Tray is actually a pittal plate/thali they used to eat everyday food before the days of steal and glass.

I really love this copper dibba(container) , it belonged to hubby's great great grandmother. I love the aged patina of this one.


In between these great heirloom items I have my stone towers and Buddha to make it more serene.

Stack of few books and nilkanthvarni (lord swaminrayan's childhood form) statue which was a gift from a dear friend.

Our Rose bushes are full of blooms and few of them are floating in urli....

So do you have heirlooms that you love having in your home or have memories or feel proud in their possession?
